DescriptionContentsAuthors

The Palgrave Handbook of International Trade comprises twenty accessible, authoritative and up-to-date surveys of the major topics in international trade. The surveys are written by leading scholars and each is a balance between core knowledge and recent research.

The Handbook, which was written to support the teaching of international trade at the graduate entry level, provides comprehensive coverage of the relevant material in a single volume and includes work not yet found in textbooks. Topics include trade theory and policy, testing trade theories, imperfect competition, heterogenous firms, multinational firms, the political economy of trade policy, the measurement of trade policy, preferential trading arrangements, trade and labour markets, migration, economic geography, the gravity model, computable general equilibrium models, development and growth.

The Handbook is a valuable source for professional economists, graduate students and researchers in international trade.
